Not too long ago A came over for a crafty evening. She grabbed the camera to take a picture of this display of drying Mod Podge screen prints. And a glass of wine. Not a crafting requirement. But occasionally helpful.
I had just screen printed a bunch of “Hello, My Name Is” badges to embellish and use on shirts, luggage tags, tote bags… and other things yet to be identified. What I’m really enjoying about the small scale screen printing is doing simple designs that can be personalized and embellished. Adrianna enjoys the construction and I enjoy the embellishment. I guess it’s a shortcut for me. Here’s what I just did with one of the badges:
After adding Aubrey’s name with a fabric marker, I ironed fusible interfacing to the back of the applique, then ironed it onto the shirt. I used a thin zig zag stitch to finish the edges. There’ll be a tiny bit of fraying. I think that’ll work for this.
In talking with the Queen of Mod Podge, aka Mod Podge Amy, she offered up a few related goodies that an enthusiastic crafter will get all kerfuddled and kerflap about. I myself am envious of the Dimensional Magic. And the Fabric Mod Podge, since I have only used the Matte original version as I did not have any of the Fabric variety. Jeeeealous. Yes, I know it’s wrong. (I’m happy for you, really I am.)

UPDATE: Bummmmmer. It’s really hard to ship Mod Podge internationally, not only because it’s expensive to ship internationally, but also because it’s a liquid/glue and the customs people do not like it. (Mod Podge haters.) So… sorry international folks. Not this round. :(
